7 Tips in Buying Your Dream Home
September 13, 2012

Buying a home is one of the most important decisions one looks forward to after years of saving up. More than just another way to secure and provide for the future, getting a place to call your own brings about a certain sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. Which is why it is important to plan ahead to make the right choice.

Robinsons Land Corporation, one of the most trusted real estate developers in the country, has a few guidelines to share for those opting to make this life-changing decision. 

1.  Research on subdivisions with a good location

Accessibility is a main criterion when it comes to purchasing a home. You want to be close to work, but don’t want to bring home the hectic pace of the city.

Robinsons Homes, one of the four residential brands of Robinsons Land, has developments located in key cities and provinces nationwide. Its fifth and newest project in Pampanga is Fernwood Parkhomes – a sprawling 13-hectare enclave with over 700 residential lots. Nestled in Brgy. Sta. Maria, Mabalacat, this subdivision is located minutes away from key landmarks such as Clark Duty Free Shopping Centers, Mabalacat Public Market, San Rafael Hospital, Mabalacat Institute, Holy Angel University, Holy Family Academy and UP Clark.  

2.  Aim for homes in safe and secure neighborhood

Your peace of mind should be a priority. If you are raising a family, living in a gated subdivision may be more attractive for the privacy and the serene setting that it offers. Every Robinsons Homes neighborhood ensures your family’s safety with a gate and guardhouse, a perimeter fence and roving guards. 

3.  Do your homework on the latest home designs and trends

Each neighborhood has its own distinct personality. Distinguish between architectural styles which are visually stunning but which may prove impractical and those that are appealing and will work beautifully for your family.

As every family is unique, each master planned Robinsons Homes development features high quality design and distinct architectural concept rich in character to suit the varying tastes of Filipino families – such as the Mediterranean-inspired theme chosen for Fernwood Parkhomes. Complemented with low-pitched roofs and arch motifs that open to verdant landscapes, this subdivision theme is well-suited for Pampangueños as it evokes a warm sense of hospitality and a design that never goes out of style.

4.  Choose a home that’s perfectly suits you and your family’s needs

Choose a house that best fits your family’s lifestyle. Make a list of all the things you absolutely need in your home (e.g. number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms) and the other features which are nice to have (e.g. carport, balcony). This will come in handy when selecting a house model.

Robinsons Homes can also help you enhance your new property with your first home. The Robinsons Homes House Design Collection features a wide architectural portfolio of house designs for start up to growing families. Pick the one you love, and Robinsons Homes will help you make it real.

Fernwood Parkhomes features some of the well-loved house models from the Robinsons Homes Design Collection -

5.  Select a home complemented with amenities and wide open spaces

While you must be comfortable in your home, it’s a good idea to check for village amenities you and your family can enjoy. Look for subdivisions that make room for wide open spaces such as pocket parks great for meditation, jogging paths for early morning strolls, a clubhouse great for spontaneous family gatherings, an activity court for sporting events and a swimming pool for afternoon relaxations.

Robinsons Homes offers a friendly, welcoming and safe place where families can grow and bond. Fernwood Parkhomes has open spaces available for various activities with either family or friends such as a multi-purpose clubhouse, a swimming pool, parks and play areas and an activity court.

6.  Meet potential neighbors

Prior to buying a home, attend open houses and explore the subdivision. You may also want to talk to the homeowners in the community to get a feel of living in the subdivision.

Robinsons Homes helps ensure a healthy neighborhood by assisting residents form a fully-functioning Homeowners Association (HOA) to initiate community development and maintain proper upkeep of the subdivision prior to turn-over.

7.  Pick a reliable developer with a solid track record
